Communities in Schools North Texas

In response to the quiet but growing dropout problem in Denton and Wise counties, Communities In Schools of North Texas (then “Communities In Schools of Denton County”) was founded in 1993. By 1998, CISNT served 8 schools and by 2002, 11 schools. For the 2019-2020 school year, CISNT has deployed 65 full time dropout prevention professionals and over 86 part time staff across 47 schools in 55 programs. A locally governed 501(C)(3) non profit organization, CISNT is led by a diverse Board of Directors that represents the diverse ethnic, educational, geographic and professional composition of the communities we serve.
